The Chancellor and Vice-Chancellor controversy begins on this issue.

Ministers Partha Chatterjee, Goutam Deb, Rabindranath Ghosh and Binay Krishna Barman are invited for the convocation . Chancellor who has right to preside , has just no information ! Where are we heading! ”

In reply to this tweet , VC Debkumar Mukhopadhahay told that the University has followed the rule . According to him, the rules framed by the state Government under West Bengal College & University (Administration & Regulation) Act leave no scope for VCs to communicate directly with university head. State Universities have to propose the convocation date to the higher education department, which takes the final call.

The rules provide that the government may intimate the convocation date to the Chancellor .
